*New* Katie’s Craft Studio

Hey Dearies, so for the next two months, starting today, I will be opening my little store. Since the holidays are coming around, I figured I would give this a little try, and if it becomes a big success, I will keep it going! I have also answered a few questions, if you are very interested and want to know more about what is going on.

What will I be offering?

I’ll be offering mostly all items that I have made by hand. Here is a list of the following products I will offering:

    • Set of 10 for $12.00
  • Seasonal Items
    • Styles of products may vary.
    • Seasonal items will only last from the beginning and end of the month. After that, I won’t take anymore requests, unless I say otherwise.
  • Special Requests
    • Anything that is italic, is a special request, due to that it may take longer to make.
    • If there is a design or a request that you would like me to try out, please let me know and depending on the project itself and how long it would take me to make it, prices may vary.

Will you still be going live and keep doing Crafty Sassy?

I figured I would answer this question, due to the fact that I haven’t been as active and on it as much. Yes, I will keep doing Crafty Sassy, however, I will try my best to keep posting patterns and showing you what I am working on.

On Tuesdays, I will try my best to go live and show them, but if I’m not able to, I will post on my Facebook Page to let you guys know. I will still try to post on Tuesdays, as well, but I might not have much time to do so, if I don’t have time to do so.

How will this store work?

Well, it will be all online. Through Facebook or Esty, I will be posting the items. If an item is posted on my Facebook page, it means that I only have a few of that idea, most likely already pre-made. If an item is posted on Esty, means I just have to make them or I might of made stock of that item.

Everything will be done through PayPal.

Why is this only lasting for a short time period?

It’s only happening for a short time because I need to see if I can handle the demands and make sure that all the products I make are 100%, to my standards, a great piece of work.

Also keep in mind that I do have a life outside of crocheting and that I want to make sure I can balance that and crocheting, especially during the upcoming holidays.

If this is something I can handle, on my own, then I will keep doing what I am doing and offer more items and deals for you guys. If there is any change, on this new adventure, I will let you know all know, most of my updates will be on my Facebook page. Here is the link, just in case you want to stay updated:

Crafty Sassy: Top 10 Crochet Projects You Can Profit From

Everyone loves hand-made crafts. Not a lot of people invest their time into them, but others, like myself, have more projects on your mind that you just don’t know where to start. Well, since I am a stay-at-home mom, I figure I would list some projects that could make you some extra cash on the side.

  1.  Towel Tops

    This is probably one of the most popular items you can make and they can sell pretty fast! You just buy a regular kitchen or hand towel and crochet the top so that you can hang it on your stove hanger.

    My great-grandmother always made these and they would be gone before you know it. They are very simple to make and there are a lot of videos on YouTube that can show you how to make these.

    Best part about making these is that you can use any towel, even for holidays! Which is pretty amazing! You always don’t have to do the same pattern either, there are many patterns out there that you can use. From one button to two, it’s completely up to you!

  2.  Towel Hangers

    I found this a few days ago and this would probably sell like hotcakes, just like the towel tops. The only difference between these and the towel  toppers is that you can hang whatever towel you would like.

    Instead of crocheting the towel itself, you crochet along a hair tie or an elastic band. These too, are pretty simple to make. Best part about these, is that you can make them any color you want them. Again, you can find a few great tutorials on this on YouTube.

  3.  Blankets

    These will always be on the list, but they do take up a good amount of your time, depending what kind of design you are going for. However, baby blankets might be the easiest thing to make, just because they are the smaller version of a big blanket.

    I know a lot of people will save the bigger blankets for family. Don’t get me wrong, they can make you some cash, you just have to be very detailed on how long it might take and you might have to use all of your spare time to finish it in time.

  4.  Hats

    These will always be on the list. Hats are a quick and easy thing to make, especially kid hats. A lot of people would buy these with a gloves, scarf combo. Depending on how good the work is, you could make some serious cash(Not enough to pay rent, though. Unless you can supply the demands.)
  5.  Scarfs

    I loved getting scarfs, my great-grandmother would always make the fuzzy ones and get them to us, in our favorite color, for Christmas. I still  have a few from when I was little. Like I said with the hats, it would be a great combo to do together!
  6.  Place mats

    Not a lot of people have crocheted place mats, but they are something someone could sell. You could also be able to customize them for holidays, with different colors and patterns! A set of four would most-likely sell like hotcakes, too!
  7.  Coasters
    Image result for crochet coasters
    Coaster aren’t something you would see at a craft fair, but they are an amazing idea to make for one! A lot of people don’t have coaster, but they don’t want to spend too much money on them.

    These are very easy to make and they can be crocheted, but some of them can be made by hand!These would go great with place mats.

  8.  Gloves/Mittens/Arm Warmers

    Gloves might be a expect level project, but mittens would be a lot easier to make. Same with arm warmers, they might be easier to make as well. Arm warmers could also be part of the combo, you can either replace the gloves, or add it to the combo of hats, scarfs and gloves.
  9.  Pins

    Yes, there is such a thing as crocheted pins! Although, you would have to work with smaller and finer yarn, they are very amazing to make. Especially, flower ones!
  10.  Mini Stuffed Animals/Characters

    You probably seen these all over the internet or Facebook. They can be very challenging for a beginner. They have all kinds of different characters or objects that you can crochet into stuffy’s.

    Amazon has a wonderful Disney Princess Crocheting Kit, that I haven’t tried out yet. They have a booklet on how to make every princess, but they only give enough yarn to make two. I highly recommend getting it, just for the booklet!

 

Are there any projects that you see at craft fairs that I missed? Comment down below and comment of which one you see would be more in an high demand!

*Note*

  • These aren’t a quick way to earn millions of dollars. This would be something you would earn on the side for some quick cash. If you make them with great quality and passion, I’m sure you could make a living doing it.
  • I just wanted to make a note, so that everyone knows this isn’t something you can get rich quick and fast. A lot of people make these as a hobby of theirs and put a lot of effort into their projects.
